Through our 1% for the Planet membership we support local, national, and international environmental organizations. We’re proud to have developed relationships with the Nova Scotia Nature Trust, David Suzuki Foundation, Environmental Defence, and Heal The Bay.
Our home province of Nova Scotia has a rich and diverse natural heritage. With less than 30% of the province’s land publicly owned, private landowners play a crucial role in protecting those places. The Nova Scotia Nature Trust is a non-governmental, charitable land conservation organization whose mission is to protect Nova Scotia’s outstanding natural legacy through land conservation. www.nsnt.ca
